Equipped for the Future. Aligned to your Purpose.

Align is a Christian-based, leadership program that helps young people live life on purpose. We believe when we are intentional with our lives, we become aligned with our calling.

The mission of Align is to equip and refocus the now generation through spiritual, personal and professional development opportunities. We focus on creating an experience where young people can identify their God-given gifts and align those gifts with their purpose. We believe by doing so, we adequately prepare young people to make a lasting impact in this world for Christ.

We offer two track options for young people trying to discover what's next. If you find yourself wanting a purposeful summer, preparing for college, exploring different career options or seeking guidance for the future, consider Align as part of our journey.
